For test items simultaneously measured on the automated multichannel analyzer, the total cost of such tests was calculated by adding each test-specific cost to a single common baseline cost required for their testing.
We assumed the costs of tests simultaneously measured on an automated multichannel analyzer. Our cost data were composed of two portions: the test-specific cost (the cost of reagents required for testing) and the common baseline cost, the latter being shared for all tests performed simultaneously and including costs for analyzer operation, equipment amortization, and for personnel labor involved in the testing process.

The alpha spectrometers employ integrated digital signal processing multichannel analyzers, achieving a high level of stability that is a major advantage for long counting times with low-level samples.
The new catalog features a complete line of products including x-ray and gamma-ray detectors, multichannel analyzers, portable instruments, environmental monitors, electron and ion detectors, and state-of-the-art preamplifiers.
Detection equipment includes high speed detectors, lock-in amplifiers, beam profile analyzers, and optical multichannel analyzers. The entire facility is computer controlled.
Other issues for time studies in the lab include how to handle tests run on multichannel analyzers, as well as how to allocate time for quality-control tests, instrument setup and shutdown, repeats, and specimen processing if these tasks are conducted by staff who do not perform the actual tests."
It is also a relatively new addition to the vocabulary of the clinical chemist, having been imported from the lexicon of the genomics, proteomics, and drug discovery scientists, but it is not a new concept for the clinical chemist who has been exposed to the use of so-called multichannel analyzers for many years, first continuous flow and then discrete analyzers.
New, multichannel analyzers offered unparalleled ease and speed in performing tests; reagents were relatively inexpensive, so the new analyzers meant big savings in labor costs--a technologist could do 20 different tests in the same time that it had formerly taken to do one!
